Routestock Route 29 Cabernet Sauvignon – 2015 – Sevenfifty Daily – 20 Wines That Crush it by the Glass

Served by Jack Mason, MS, Pappas Bros. Steakhouse; Houston and Dallas

At this classic Texas steakhouse chain, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. In fact, the by-the-glass list at its three outposts currently includes five Cabernet Sauvignon–heavy wines. But these days, this Route 29 from Napa’s RouteStock is outselling the rest, with each location running through two or three cases a week. Cabs in the $15 to $19 range always perform best on Mason’s lists. He and his team regularly conduct blind tastings of affordable Cabernets; this was a standout, with freshness and rich black fruit. “Napa Cabernet that can be offered at $16 a glass is becoming increasingly rare,” Mason says, “so to find one that meets the price point and is so tasty was like striking gold.”
